QUALICUM BEACH GREEN LANEWAYS

MDI worked with the Town of Qualicum Beach to draft guidelines for managing rainwater runoff in local development projects. The objectives of the guidelines are to protect watercourses, to reduce the need for heavy infrastructure upgrades, and to protect existing municipal drainage works.


The Town of Qualicum Beach Green Laneways project evolved out of a curiosity over whether laneways could do more than simply provide lot access for parking or municipal services. The Green Laneways project team developed schematic designs for public and private lands that integrate rainwater management facilities alongside pedestrian circulation, bicycle lanes, vehicle access, parking, and typical infrastructure.
